Default I cannot run macros on another computer after saving

macros created on any document on one computer will not run on the other
computers, and vice versa. I keep getting a box telling me that I should
check my security settings. I put them all to the lowest possible, no luck.

First, you should _never_ set your security settings to "Low." Ever. Medium
will allow you to run any macros that you want to run.

Macros are not normally stored in documents, but you can do that if you try.
Make sure of where your macros are stored. They are recorded in normal.dot
by default. A better storage place is often the document template or a
separate global template.

See http://addbalance.com/word/movetotemplate.htm for step-by-step
instructions on moving / sharing / copying / backing-up customizations
including AutoText, AutoCorrect, keyboard assignments, toolbars, macros,
etc.
